Switching Your Domain to Hail
Switching your domain over to Hail is very straightforward on the Hail side.
- Head to the ‘Manage domains’ section of your Hail Settings and add your domain - e.g. mydomain.co.nz
- Once added Hail will lookup the domain’s current DNS settings, list them for you and tell you what they need to be changed to in order for the domain to point to Hail. (Required Data vs Current Data).
- Then all you need to do is make those changes with your domain registrar
Note: Some registrars will update the DNS settings on a set schedule each day, so it can take up to 24 hours.
- Once that’s done you can tell Hail to associate the domain with your Hail Website (or even an individual publication or article if you have multiple domains you want to point to different content).
